Changes Underway at UC to Enhance Campus Life

Humboldt State University is making changes at the University Center that are designed to make major improvements to services and programs for students.

Technology Available for Students, Faculty, Staff

Dear Faculty & Staff,

We want you to be aware of the technology items that are available to both you and your students.


For Faculty & Staff:

Fall 2020 New Employee Sign-up Process

The process of hiring new employees for Fall 2020 has been streamlined. All new student, staff, and faculty employee sign-up forms have been digitized and will be sent via Adobe Sign. The new sign-up packets are available now on the HRAPS website on the Onboarding & Offboarding Home page. 

Loss of HSU Theatre, Film & Dance Technical Director Jayson Mohatt

Dear University Community:

We are saddened to share news of the loss of Jayson Mohatt, Technical Director in the  Department of Theatre, Film & Dance, who died of non-COVID natural causes on July 26. He was 63. We extend our condolences to his wife, Star, two sons Joshua and Maxwell, and loved ones. 

Jayson received his undergraduate degree at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas. 

Fall 2020 Professional Development

Dear HSU Faculty and Staff:


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the focus of this year’s Professional Development Day is on instructional continuity. The Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL) will host a two-day series of faculty development workshops and self-paced resources to assist with instructional continuity in both virtual and face-to-face instructional settings. These events will take place on August 17-18, 2020  as follows:  


New Faculty Orientation: August 13-14


New Lecturer Orientation: August 19

The Social Responsibility Commitment: Protecting Yourself and Your Community

As members of the Humboldt State University community, all of us have a responsibility to ourselves and each other to maintain a healthy and safe environment during the pandemic. That’s why students and employees are being asked to take the Social Responsibility Commitment. 

Leadership Change at University Center

Effective today, Dave Nakamura is no longer serving as the Executive Director of the HSU University Center. We thank Dave for his 27 years of service and leadership at HSU.
We will work with the UC Board Chair and key stakeholders to plan and announce additional organizational updates, including the process for searching for a permanent Director, within the coming days.  

Faculty/Staff/Admin Stakeholder Meeting for UPD Chief Search

Humboldt State University is currently in the search process for its next Chief of Police. As the Chief of Police is a critical position that impacts the entire campus community, it is important we obtain insight and feedback from our many stakeholders. 

The University is hosting a virtual stakeholder session for Faculty, Staff, and Administrators to attend. 

This virtual session will be Tuesday August 18th from 3:00pm-4:30pm. Here is the link to the stakeholder session. 

Update: Approvals and Payroll Forms for New Student Employees

This version clarifies information regarding the Supervisor Checklist and Job Hazard Analysis form.

The process of hiring new student employees for Fall 2020 has been streamlined. All new student employee hirings previously required additional Vice President approval for both budgetary and COVID-19 campus population oversight. Approval from Vice Presidents is no longer necessary and new student hiring may proceed without this additional step. Departments should post open student positions on HSU Handshake.
